always quiet out in the north sea this time off the year (both south and north)..i was paid off from cape just before christmas having been on the bg armada for over 3 years..
should pick up around the end of feb/mid march time i hope..i know cape have just won a 5 yr contract for ongoing work with bp..and have heard rumours that they have picked up a few other platforms..but till you get your check-in nothing is 100 % sure...as most offshore lads will tell you...

rope access would be a good way to go..but again it could be a case of how many hrs on the ropes you got before you could get job offshore..

to be honest i would say it is just a mix of good timing ,how good your cv is, and a lot of the time who you know ...
you get some really good lads lads offshore but at the same time you get a few complete a$$holes to. some dont know there arse from there elbow when it come to doing real scaffolding like hangers and jobs you may have to think about for more than a few minutes, and it makes you wonder how the f**k they got out there in the first place when there are good lads sat at home...i have got some a few other contacts number for places who go offshore send us your e-mail via personal message on here and i will let you have what i got... regards
